Local events during the Global Week of Action
On Monday 11th April at 12:30pm a bride and groom representing developing countries with struggling rice industries will allow guests, representing America, to throw rice at them to highlight the issue of dumping.
The stunt being organised by Oxfam will take place at Birmingham Cathedral. The intention behind the stunt is really to attract media interest but since the area is fairly public this will be an opportunity to engage with members of the public and hand out leaflets explaining what is happening. If you are interested and would like more detail please contact Ruth Thompson {rthompson@oxfam.org.uk}
On Saturday 16 April, Public signing of Trade Justice voting cards, with MPs, church leaders, leaders of minority ethnic religious groups and trades council officers will take place in Open Market Square, Wolverhampton from 10am until 12 noon. This will then be repeated in Queen Square from 1pm until 3pm. There will also 'unfair games' to highlight the unfairness of trade rules with local schools groups, and street theatre, songs, competitions etc.
If you are interested and would like more detail please contact Trevor Stockton, 01902782207, {trevor@trevorstockton.wanadoo.co.uk}
